I have downloaded a recent (less than a month ago) Moodle (with Moodle essentials Theme) and installed it on OpenShift.
I have very modest needs, where at most I would like to support five concurrent users. However, page page load times vary from 1.5 seconds to 11 seconds (even when loading the same page!) for just one concurrent user. I have some Joomla sites on OpenShift that run without issue for many months so I did not know how to proceed.
My question is: Is Moodle just resource intensive that such non-dedicated environments can't be used or it may have something to do with Moodle Essentials? Any of you had success running Moodle on OpenShift (Small Gear)?
